Forum: oldtimeradio Subject: Any OTRR volunteers in San Francisco?

Hi all. We just received 30 bankers boxes of old radio. most on cassette or reel-to-reel. We love to digitize them but first we need to figure out what we already have so we don't duplicate. It may be a little or a lot.

Anyone willing to go through the boxes and check for duplication? If so please let us know at info@archive.org.
Thanks.

Hi Mr. K,
Did anyone come forward to help here? We're mostly east coast folks at the House of Toast so other than photo identification of labels we can't be much help.

I do have a suggestion about digitization. I've now use 4 channel tape machines. They pull all 4 tracks at once on most tapes. Then just feed the output to either a couple of computers or one with properly configured sound boards. Two of the tracks are reversed but software fixes that.

This has pleasantly reduced our work load.
